Mod Pizza was founded by Scott and Ally Svenson. The pair had sold their successful coffee chain, Seattle Coffee Company, to Starbucks in 1998. The couple decided to start their own pizza chain after being unable to find healthy pizzas for their sons.
The pizza chain is known for its individual artesian styled pizzas that cook in only 3 minutes, using an 800-degree oven. There are 9 classic pizzas, a seasonal pizza, “salad” pizza, and regular salads to choose from. The company also offers handmade milkshakes, fountain drinks, and beer.
In January 2017, the company celebrated the opening of its 200th location.
Forbes listed Mod Pizza as the Fastest Growing Restaurant in America in February 2018.
Headquarters for Mod Pizza are located in Seattle, Washington.
